What is a Micro Wedding and What Are The Perks of a Micro Wedding

Over the years I have been a wedding photographer I have photographed lots of small weddings from 4 to 15 guests and small weddings or Micro Weddings as they have come to be called through Covid 19 are still as special and beautiful as larger weddings. From April Micro Weddings are allowed and I can assure you that a small wedding can be just as wonderful and in some cases more personal than before! If you are thinking about having a Micro Wedding here are just some of the perks!

So what is a Micro Wedding? For me a Micro Wedding can be exactly the same as a larger wedding just with not as many guests! You can still have wedding photography from the bridal preparations all the way through to the speeches and the bride and groom dance to capture your full wedding story.

So what are some of the perks of having a Micro Wedding?

It Can Be Less Stressful

A Micro Wedding is quite often less stressful for you to plan as it can be stripped all the way back to just the most important things to you as a couple, the family and guests that you absolutely want there and what atmosphere and experience you would like to create for your wedding day. Just because you are looking to have a Micro Wedding doesn't mean that you have to scrimp on the styling, the food and drink and of course your wedding dress! 

One of the things that I love about Micro Weddings is the feel of them, everyone that is there is so special to you, they all know you really well and it creates a wonderful happy atmosphere to your wedding day. Also you will be able to spend more time with your wedding guests rather than a quick 5 minutes before you have to move onto the next table.  

There are less Eyes on You

For some couples the idea of having to say your vows in front of lots of people or walking down the aisle can be a bit scary but if you decide to have a Micro Wedding you maybe more comfortable in the wedding ceremony surrounded by just a few people.

You Can Add More Personalisation to Your Day

When I photograph any wedding I always make sure that I get lots of photographs of the bits and bobs couples have to make their wedding day personal to them, for example the cake or the table decorations. With Micro Weddings you may find that you are able to add more of these decorative items to your wedding day or maybe have those personalised favors that you always wanted but weren't able to have due to the cost for a larger number of wedding guests!

You can Save Money

One of the most obvious perks about a Micro Wedding is the cost! If you have a smaller guest list you can save on food and drink but that doesn't mean you will miss out on quality and a perfect wedding venue that seemed out of budget before maybe able to accommodate you with a smaller wedding if you can choose a weekday for your wedding.

For me any wedding is special whether it is with 4 people or 100 people, I feel honored to be able to be part of your wedding day and capture the special moments that happen throughout your wedding day. If you decide to go from a Micro Wedding and would like me to photograph your special day have a look at my Gold Package that you can find here:  it's the perfect package to capture your micro wedding and can be made bespoke for your wedding photography requirements!

What Questions Should I Ask My Wedding Photographer

I had a think about what questions I have been asked by bride and grooms in my wedding photography consultations with them and I thought I would put together a little question and answer session with myself! If you have any more questions that I haven't covered here then please just get in touch as I would be more than happy to answer them. 

Do You Have My Date Available?

When you get in touch with me the first thing I will ask you is what your wedding date is to make sure that I have your wedding date available, as I can get booked 2 years in advance depending on the date but don't let that put you off enquiring about your wedding date as I maybe available!

How Long Have You Been Working as a Wedding Photographer? How Many Weddings Do You Shoot a Year?

I have been a wedding photographer since 2006! I live and breath wedding photography and I also have a portrait studio too. I am very skilled photographer and I have also won awards for my wedding photography so you are in good hands!
I photograph lots of weddings each year as I just love being allowed to be involved in your special day, it is a very big honor!

Can I See Wedding Albums?

Yes of course you can, I have wedding albums at the studio and if you can't visit the studio I have a video on my social media that you can view!

Have You Worked at Our Venue Before? 

I have worked at lots of different venues through the years and I am also recommended at a few too so I may have already worked at your wedding venue before. If I haven't I will do some research on your wedding venue and also try to arrive early on the day to have nosey around on the day. Venue visits aren't something that I can always do as I am quite often very busy editing wedding photographs.

What Wedding Packages Do You Offer?

I offer 3 wedding photography packages, the Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each one covers different moments of your wedding day. The Silver covers from 45 minutes before your wedding ceremony up until you go in for your wedding breakfast or up to 4 hours which ever comes first. The Gold covers from 2 hours before the ceremony with bridal preparations up until the speeches or you can run the package from arrivals at the wedding ceremony up until the first dance. The Platinum covers 2 hours of bridal preparations up until the first dance with 2 photographers (the 2nd photographer leaves after the speeches) You can find out more details about all the wedding photography packages that I offer on my website

Do You Offer an Engagement Shoot?

Yes you can have an engagement shoot if you would like to! These are £25 and include 1 high quality image download from a private web gallery that will be presented to you after the shoot. You have an hour of photography time and the photographs will be processed in colour, black and white and a couple of vintage tones. You can see more about the pre wedding shoots I offer here:

Can We Pay an Extra Fee If We Require You to Stay Longer?

Absolutely, if you would like to have extra hours I charge £50 per hour.

How Much is the booking fee and When Do You Need It By?

I ask for a £100 non refundable booking fee, this secures your wedding date in the diary. As soon as you have decided that you would like to have me for your wedding photography the booking fee and booking form are required. I can't hold dates as I get lots of enquiries all the time so if you are looking to book me I would do it sooner rather than later!

How Long Will the Pictures Take to Arrive? Will We Receive Digital Copies of the Images – and How Many Will That Be?

The photos take 2 to 3 weeks to be edited and processed for you. I ask all couples to check the client gallery for your wedding photographs, when you see them just drop me an email or message and I will be able to give you the password for the private preview gallery. The photographs will be processed in full colour first, then in black and white and also a couple of vintage tones too.

You receive the high quality images in the web gallery, this is set to download once you have approved the images so that you can get the high quality images to use as you wish. The amount that you will receive depends on the package that you choose.
